Playing Men


Location la: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Matjaž Ivanišin. Croatia. 2017, 60 mins. Digital projection. In Slovenian, Croatian, and Italian with English subtitles. This seriously playful and unpredictable essay film takes us into a strictly male world, observing the games that men play. What starts as an inventory of manly activities and their ancient roots within remote corners of the Mediterranean soon becomes something brazenly unconventional, shamelessly comedic, and genuinely provocative. Screened at FIDMarseille. New York premiere. 

Preceded by two short films: No Attempt Was Made to Reattach (Dir. Joe Callander. U.S.A. 2016, 2 mins) A man looks back at an ill-fated day at work. The God of 400 People on Drugs, or The Autobiography of Joe Callander* (Dir. Joe Callander. U.S.A. 2016, 5 mins) American filmmaker Joe Callander takes his Facebook friendship with Australian DJ Joe Callander to the next level.
